BMW radio: Sheer Howard audio pleasure
BMW radio: Sheer Howard audio pleasure

It gives us "sheer" pleasure to announce that Howard Audio has once again been selected to compose, arrange and mix BMW's forthcoming radio series. Driven by local agency, OpenCo, the campaign features four differently themed tracks. The music is composed to reflect the brand's international tone - a fusion of traditional orchestral music over contemporary rhythm tracks. We're thrilled BMW has once again trusted us not only to compose the original music - but also to look after the final mix going further this year.
